Does Windows use Bluetooth Authenticated pairing with encryption automatically when you connect Bluetooth devices like earbuds to it? Is that Level 4? If it's not automatic, how do I get Windows to do that?

Is there any way to prevent other people from seeing and/or connecting to your Bluetooth devices like earbuds? And only for your phone/laptop to be connected to it?

Configuration of the Bluetooth encryption key size After being familiar with the available policy settings and the possible values, it’s time to take a look at the steps for configuring the Bluetooth encryption key size policy setting. The nine steps below walk through the configuration of a new custom device configuration profile that includes the required OMA-URI and its value. The wizard style of configuring makes sure that the device configuration profile will be assigned to the selected users and/or devices.

Open the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center portal navigate to Devices > Windows > Configuration profiles to open the Windows | Configuration profiles blade On the Windows | Configuration profiles blade, click Create profile to open the Create a profile page On the Create a profile page, provide the following information and click Create to open the Custom wizard Platform: Windows 10 and later Profile type: Custom On the Basics page, provide the following information and click Next Name: Provide a valid name for the custom device configuration profile Description: (Optional) Provide a valid description for the custom device configuration profile On the Configuration settings page, click Add to open the Add Row page. On the Add Row page, provide the following information and click Add (and click Next back on the Configuration settings page) Name: Provide a valid name for the OMA-URI setting Description: (Optional) Provide a valid description for the OMA-URI setting Figure 2: Add custom configuration OMA-URI: ./Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Bluetooth/SetMinimumEncryptionKeySize Data type: Select Integer Value: 7 On the Scope tags page, configure the applicable scopes and click Next On the Assignments page, configure the assignment and click Next On the Applicability rules page, configure the applicability rules (think about the existence of this setting for only the Business, Enterprise and Education edition and the existence of this setting for only the 2004 version and later) and click Next On the Review + create page, verify the configuration and click Create Result of the Bluetooth encryption configuration Let’s end this post by showing the result of the Bluetooth encryption configuration. This time I’ll do that by simply looking at the Event Viewer and the MDM Diagnostic Report and relating the information seen at both locations. In both overviews the following corresponding information is seen of the successfully applied configuration.

Policy setting: SetMinimumEncryptionKeySize Policy area: Bluetooth Policy value: 7 Policy scope: Device Policy ID: 5C71E17A-2715-47C6-B338-4EE-07C445339
